The Raven Boys
I started reading this at my desk last week (perk of being a librarian!) and fell so in love that I ended up giving both library copies away, and put a copy on hold at the public library. It was worth the delay. Strong characters, couple of twists and turns, a growing love triangle, fantasy elements. Love it. Steifvater's writing is beautiful. She has a way with words that has made her one of my favorite authors. My only quibble-and you know there is always a quibble: For most of the book, any cursing is only mentioned -"he let out a string of compound curse words..." making me think I could take this to a middle school crowd. By the end, we're seeing F-bombs and other cursing. Personally, I have no issue, but as a librarian, I would hesitate to offer this up to anyone younger than high school. So, for the 14+ crowd, it's a win, and one of the best books I've read in 2012.
